Get what I need


Beginning my advanced education at community college was always the plan.  My Mom earned her Registered Nursing degree at Rappahannock Community College when I was younger, a degree that made a big difference in the quality of my family’s life.  Growing up, Rappahannock Community College was a part of my life.  Community college is a great place to lay a foundation for the knowledge that will carry me through my life.   It is a place to build from the beginning, to really work with my hands and lay bricks at the ground floor.  Now, having earned an Associates degree, I have a solid platform for the rest of my life, one I built a day at a time and paid for myself working numerous jobs.

Time waits for no man or woman, however, so I have to keep moving on.  But I can bring with me everything I have learned wherever I go next.  The work that I have done, in the classroom and in the real world, has given so much to me.  I have a lot to offer wherever I go from here.

I want to be useful.  I want to take all I can from the world and give back as much as I am capable.  I want to develop as a scholar, as a citizen, as a member of the collective conscience, and as an individual.  There is still so much more work to be done.  The architecture of my life is incomplete.  There are a lot of things that I want.  If I try sometimes, I get what I need.

When the rain starts to fall, this colorful drain and gutter system attached to the outside of a building in the Neustadt Kunsthofpassage turn into charming musical instruments. The Funnel Wall is one of the strangest and most enjoyable attractions in Dresden’s student district in the new town.

Here’s my remix of Radiohead’s “Nude”.  I did it a couple of years ago when they offered up stems as a promotion/contest thing.  Sadly, I only got 28 votes.  Too high-falootin’, maybe?  I dunno.  

Start your week off right!

Fuck the contest, this is brilliant.

So so


I have not felt like writing lately.  I have felt outside of my skin.  Sorry, sweet tumblr, and whatever scant ears are around.

There are of course things to write about. Hawt teachers, vindictive teachers; thankfully, they are not all one and the same.  There are letters and lost and found acquaintances.

But I have not felt like writing lately.  Nope.
